AT A GLANCE
WHAT IT’S GOT Seven airbags, stability control, seven-inch colour touchscreen, navigation, Bluetooth, Nissan Connect smartphone integration, USB port, four 12V outlets (one in tub), rear camera, 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, full-size spare.
WHAT IT HASN’T Parking sensors, dynamic camera guidelines, voice control, Apple Carplay, Android auto, trailer sway control, collision warning, automatic emergency braking, radar cruise, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, towbar. OWNERSHIP Servicing costs $2950 over 5 years/100,000km, with intervals of 12 months/20,000km.
WHAT WE LIKED The 2.3 works well with the seven-speed automatic, returning great fuel economy and lazy, tractable performance. Tidier unladen handling and a much more comfortable ride than most one-tonners. Stable and secure on a rough road. Spacious cabin. Good fit and finish quality.
WHAT WE DIDN’T If you want to carry or tow heavy loads this is not your ute. 3500kg max towing? Tell ’em they’re dreamin’. Underdone on safety and infotainment features at the price. Unsupportive driver’s seat cushion. No steering wheel reach adjustment. Steering has too many turns lock to lock. Short warranty. Expensive servicing.
